Philips Respironics has recalled certain V60 and V60 Plus ventilators because some of them could stop working due to an expired adhesive, the Food and Drug Administration announced this week. FDA has identified this as a Class 1 recall, the most serious type because it may cause serious injury or death. No injuries or adverse health consequences have been reported.
In other news, Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corp. has recalled certain lots of epinephrine injection, an emergency treatment for allergic reactions, because the needle may clog and prevent the drug from dispensing. Health care providers may report associated adverse reactions or quality problems to the FDA's MedWatch program.
